  1. klopp, maximum pressing and maximum tempo...also has a player chasing the ball. one player presses on whoever has the ball with the one that hunts down the ball too presses whoever is on the ball
  2. O, I've been through the search option and notice reactions are that the AI became far more conservative in their tactical approach to a team that has developed a reputation apparently...going to do some tinkering and testing
  3. Had a great season then the new one not so...what do you do to your tactics when it does not seem to be effective come the second season? I'm using a customized version of Sir Goallot's 4-2-3-1 for 15.3.2. Returning to the original did not work so well. Any takers? Btw, think the last FM I played was 2005. After I get the hang of 2015, I'm going FM2016....its been a while and no more sliders!!
  4. both my MC stay back, one DLP and the other ball winner. my full-backs attack instead to assist midfeld build up. the MC are pretty good at getting balls that are cleared by the opposing team. they also work very well with the DC's to cramp up the opposition strikers and win the ball. it does weaken our final surge for goal lacking slightly in overloading players near or in the opposition box but the two MC's sitting back provides and nice shape overall. attack into box is by AMC and wingers as the full-backs cross late into the opposition area which have at least 3 finishers.
  5. for years playing cm/fm, this has always been an area of complete importance and needs to be comprehensive. Cleon, as brilliant as this post may be, how about, instead of just looking at where weaknesses are on our own tactic, trying to read what the opposition team had strategized. the whole idea of sports interactive evolving the game towards to visual status is actually to look at the game and have an idea of whats going on.
  6. A.Madrid's Simeone, long ball to Costa and give him support, everyone else play behind the ball.
  7. according to an article I read from thezonalmarking, totti plays deep to pull out and disrupt inter's defenders for florenzi to score. "Now 37 years old, Francesco Totti has been the star of this Serie A season, turning in a serious of good performances in something approaching the ‘false nine’ role he famously played so well under Luciano Spalletti"
  8. use two DM position instead and set them as DM/Support and deep lying playmaker. then put your full-backs on attack, play direct passing with one AF and one DLF/Support, Berbatov being a near perfect candidate. this set up has two wave of attacks, first wave is counter attack and if you don't lose the ball then when the two full-backs get up with the support of the defensive midfielders then you get possession wave and if you were to use wing-backs you might even get a third wave where the wing-backs will get in to assist of score. don't underestimate wing-backs going up, don't be fooled by their low attacking stats because when they join the attack, in some cases they would be overloading offense so are left completely unmarked running through opposition defense
  9. when playing against teams better or away, match preparation and tactic mentality match up is the best combo? i'm playing fulham, 4-1-2-2-1 winged and struggling a bit with difficult games being spoilt by playing Manchester United before this, Fm13.3.3 here. i'm just curious, can I set match preparation to defensive positioning all through out the game unless I am sure the team i'm up against are weaker? I am thinking to have a solid back four while having offensive options, not too fussy on winning with high scoring numbers.
  10. not playing fm14 yet but from what I've read about 4-2-3-1 and applied successfully on my fm2013 game, do you have high closing down on your more attacking 4-2-3-1? it is designed around it, high closing down and fast pace attacking. nick the ball from the opposition and attack immediately rather than intermediately. 2nd more defensive version would be 4-2-3-1 deep, direct passing, counter attack, winger role instead of inside forward and attacking mid field instead of playmaker, full-backs all the way up. asymmetrical setup only if you know the opposition has one side of their tactic weaker than the other.....this is all Jurgen Klopps game on 4-2-3-1, he has three variations just like how SI has adapted this approach advice on 3 sets of tactics as mainstream per team http://www.thehardtackle.com/2011/tactical-titan-deconstructing-the-kinetics-of-kloppmetry/
  11. "Jürgen Klopp plays an attacking 4-2-3-1 with a fast paced pressing game and a high backline. In defense Hummels plays as the libero and connects with the midfield with a short, probing passing game. Bender and Sahin are holding midfielders, Bender being a ball winning midfielder and Sahin used to connect with the attacking third of the midfield. Kagawa plays as a playmaker as well as an auxiliary striker, whereas the wide players are deployed as inside forwards, allowing the full backs to overlap." "His 4-2-3-1 Deep has Sahin playing as deep lying playmaker, Bender a ball winning midfielder with more defensive duties. Kagawa plays as an attacking midfielder supporting Barrios. The wingers maintain width and don't cut in. This is his fast counter attacking, direct passing plan." "4-2-3-1 asymmetric has a mixed passing game. Bender as a defensive ball winning midfielder and Sahin as a box to box midfielder. Kagawa plays a trequartista and Barrios as an advance forward. Now it all depends on the strength/weakness of the oppositions to decide the position of the wide midfielders. If the oppositions have weakness in their left flank, Dortmund will play a right midfielder as a winger to put more pressure on the oppositions vulnerable left flank, but the left midfielder will play the role of a wide midfielder, working in tandem with the left fullback." courtesy of thehardtackle.com rather interesting the asymmetrical one design to capitalize on the weakness of an opposition team. it is important to note however that it was an after thought applied on the second half of a game after analyzing the opposition. really goes to show Klopp's understanding of a situations and capitalizing on it.

  13. update: got an open play goal after reloading game, Gino Peruzzi as WB/A pull their WB towards him, passes to Nani who moves into the box with some space and scores, 1-1. their goal was quite perculiar, one of their FC wide ran all the way to the byline and crossed for my aerial dominant DC's to miss their charging FC, jumping just 12 against one 18 and one 15, but that's football. who says Rooney does or Aguero does not score from headers
  14. playing Hull away, they went 3-2-3-2 or 5-3-2, very defensive but their mentality was set to one that is rather offensive? anyway, I simply could not break them down starting with a 4-1-2-2-1, 4-3-2(wingers)-1 and 4-2-3-1. played attack, had my MC's, IF wingers and FC/Treq all leaping into their penalty box to be courted politely by 8 footballers, keeper uncontested. so I thought, if they had 8 men very close to the penalty axis, 5 within, 3 DC's and their two WB,s deep while their 3 MC's just outside to prevent an unmarked player shooting unopposed from distance, I would be better off sending 7 of my players up. back four with WB set to the two wide defenders was not going to do it, they come too late and are left out in the build up beforeHhull regain possession, so I push them to a genuine WB position to attack and DM huddlestone to defending deep lying playmaker. suddenly they integrate with the attack, moving up in unison, sometimes cutting in if my IF are forced wide. the important bit, as they move up some of Hull's players felt like marking or pressing them, opening up that 8 men gridlock. unfortunately I could not score from open play having spent most of 60 minutes trying to crack it. either it distorted Hull's 8, pull out some of their players out of position or left one of my attackers free in a wide position to make a decent cross. i do not play a targetman so on the 80th minute i brought back Phil Jones to his starting DM/defend swapping him with Huddlestone(CM/Attack) whose deep lying passes simply could not do much but hold possession. with Huddlestone's 15 jumping or aerial threat, effectively within the penalty box, he connected with some crosses but by this time his condition was low 70% and were missing chances. at least next time i see an opposition playing this formation i know what to do, i lost the champions league quarter final to juventus playing a similar formation, 3-3-2-2 i think it was. them WB against a team with narrow attacks are very effective indeed and recovery time is just right upon losing possession. i wonder if long ball to a targetman on 4-2-4 would crack it?
